Red Bank Battlefield Park

100 Hessian Ave National Park


Red Bank Battlefield Park is open year round sunrise to sunset, except Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

The James and Ann Whitall House is open seasonally, from April through mid-October, most Thursdays through Sundays, from 1pm to 4pm.

In 1748, Quakers Ann and James Whitall established a 400-acre plantation at Red Bank along the Delaware River. This bustling plantation included fruit orchards, a lumberyard, a shad fishery, livestock, and a ferry. Together, Ann and James raised nine children who worked the plantation alongside dozens of indentured servants hailing from Ireland, the Netherlands, and Germany.
